There are a few things that seem fairly clear about the Russian government. First, it loves to censor stuff, preferring whitelists to blacklists. Secondly, the Russian government isn’t so big on this whole free speech thing, and it’s even less enthused about anonymous speech. Also, we know that the Russian government likes to limit what it calls “obscenities,” which not only feature your common curse words and YouTube style internet comments, but also anyone who is gay and likes being gay enough to tell someone else that being gay ain’t so bad. And, finally, I now know the Russian government sucks at irony.

    The thing that scares me more than the obvious censors is the hidden software based censorship. At least this sort of thing can be mocked and provoke some ,albeit dark,humour.
